Description

Congratulations for passing the North Carolina Bar Exam. The Orange County Bar Association would like to welcome you to the profession and give you the opportunity to be sworn in before your peers and colleagues on September 20, 2019 in the Orange County Courthouse. We hope you will join us for the ceremony and stay for a brief reception with hors d’oeuvres to follow. Please find some general guidelines and policies regarding the ceremony below. We look forward to welcoming you to the practice of law and ask that your RSVP to help us prepare appropriately.

LICENSES – please bring your license to practice law and the accompanying paperwork with you to the ceremony. THIS IS NOT THE PASSAGE LETTER YOU RECEIVED. Your license will be delivered in a separate package from the Board of Law Examiners near the end of September.

FILING FEE - Please note that your licensure paperwork will require a mandatory $7 cash filing fee to be paid to the Clerk of Court following the ceremony.

DRESS AND GROOMING – You are encouraged to follow the guidelines provided by the Board of Law Examiners for your attire during the ceremony. As the ceremony will take place in an open session of District Court, professional dress such as suits or other courtroom attire is appropriate.

FAMILY AND FRIENDS – Family and friends are welcome to attend and celebrate this special occasion. Please note that those in attendance are asked to conduct themselves with decorum and respect appropriate for a courtroom and its proceedings.

RECEPTION – The Orange County Bar will host a brief reception in the courthouse following the ceremony. Members of the local bar and other judicial officials will be invited to attend to extend congratulations and introduce themselves to newly sworn in members.

PICTURES – Pictures are appropriate and encouraged during the ceremony and outside the Courthouse; there will be plenty of your colleagues in attendance who would be happy to take photos on your camera should you desire.
